Has anyone ever experienced lucid dreaming? I have a couple of times and it is a pretty interesting thing. I have read online about certain tips and tricks to more easily allow yourself to realize you are dreaming. Off the top of my head the most important trick is to always keep a dream journal. This allows you to more vividly recall your dreams and remember them since most people always tend to forget their dreams as soon as they wake up. If you are able to remember your dreams more clearly you are able to better realize when you are actually in one.
